Chords:
A X 0 3 3 3 0 D(b) X 5 7 7 7 5 D/C# x 4 0 2 3 2 E 0 2 2 1 0 0
D X X 0 2 3 2 Eb X 6 8 8 8 6 D/C x 3 0 2 3 2
C 3 3 2 0 1 0 E(b) X 7 9 9 9 7 D/B x 2 0 2 3 2

On the chords the (b) = barred

On the bridge part strum the chord 2x then mute 2x again then mute,
and what i mean by mute is take ur palm and lay across the strings,
that's why i labeled the chord more than once.
In my first version I forgot to add something towards the end before the last bridge,
but I put it in the 2nd to last chorus.
b = bend
~ = vibrato
\ = slide down
p = pull
